How Much is a U.S. Senate Seat Worth? You Decide! (Updated)

Posted By on Tue, Dec 9, 2008 at 11:38 AM

From the "That Didn't Take Long" department of political humor, an eBay listing for the U.S. Senate seat vacated by President-Elect Obama and allegedly shopped around by Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.


Bidding started at 99 cents and, as of this writing, has reached $51. Bidders, note: Free shipping!

Update at 2:10 p.m.: Unsurprisingly, the party poopers at eBay have taken down the listing.
